I’m entertained. I had velocity silver, used that to get Qatar Platinum (go figure) and Now got velocity gold... no flying in the foreseeable future though to all academic. :)

Received this...

A nice gesture, but I doubt the extension until the end of the year will be of use at all.

Looks like Qatar have extended status out to 31/12 this year. Not that it’ll mean much for a while!

Any extensions for other tiers?

Edit - Zinger beat me to it.

Same email for my Platinum match
I should be in line for an early vaccine but I'm not holding out lots of hope for international travel then but can probably make domestic use
Wonder if the reduced status requirement for renewal will carry over

Haven't received it yet. My tier annual periods ends the 10th of June.
Emails must be sent by batch for each annual tier periods.
But at the end of the day, they will all be extended. No need to stress.
They kinda have to otherwise it's quite bad PR.

Now waiting EY to extend my plat status once again (more valuable for me as I used to fly a lot VA and EY, and always seamless and nice experiences all the time).

I also received. Doubt it will go beyond end of this year. Whilst travel to/from Aus likely to be restricted well into next year, other countries will open up a lot quicker than us and have already done so, therefore they'll probably have a large enough percentage of FF's travelling and participating in their rewards program - just not many Australians.
